Tree House-Kiawah Island

Photo Credit: Holger Hobenaus

Description: The owners of this home travel extensively and appreciate the great outdoors. Global travels shaped their desire for a home that embraces nature. The bridge connecting the sleeping and living structures allows cool ocean breezes to pass from the marsh to the front yard; decks and stairs to pool and terrace visually connect inside and out. Most walls from the street are solid, providing privacy, yet they open to rooms of glass, timber and soaring ceilings with views of Bass and Cinder Creeks and Folly Island.

There is no exterior brick in this design. The tiles you see are sourced to harmonize with the color pallet of the rest of the home.

Do you know what actually got planted? It looks like a moss not a grass. We pretty much have the same stone laid right now, and trying to decide what to put in between. We did 3" spacing by the way.

Is the oyster tabby rough on the feet around the pool? Is that poured in place or a local product in pavers?

Hi, The stones are not rough because they are "filled" and honed. They were not poured in place, but purchased as local pavers. Hope that helps.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

"The bridge connecting the sleeping and living structures allows cool ocean breezes to pass from the marsh to the front yard," says Anderson. "Decks and stairs to the pool and terrace visually connect inside and out." The enclosed part is the dining room; the area overhead is a connecting balcony that has views over the marshes out to Folly Beach and the Atlantic. A grid of tabby pavers (concrete with oyster shells mixed in) in sod keeps clean edges within the immediate landscape around the house.
